“Grow For Me” Little Shop Of Horrors Rick Moranis
But I can say that disliking it isn’t gonna earn you any brownie points with me.
Oh. Oh. Oh! It is every gift giving holiday right now!!!
ONE OF MY FAVORITE BANDS COVERING ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE MUSICALS. YESSSSSSSSS!
Apparently the alien is supposed to be good…HE TOOK A LOCKET FROM A CHILD THAT HAD A PICTURE OF THE CHILD’S DEAD MOTHER IN IT.
YOU GET SUPER 8 BUT YOU DON’T GET LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS???
A PLANT WAS SINGING FOR RICK MORANIS TO GIVE HIM HUMAN BODIES. THIS IS NOT RELEVANT.
1. That was a metaphor.
2. TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW.
This was my face for the entire movie. Just so you know, this movie severely disturbed me. For clarification, this 1986 version not the 1960 one.
I was surprised by the big names who made cameos…Steve Martin is a sadist dentist addicted to laughing gas. John Candy runs a radio show about weird events. Bill Murray is a masochist who goes to Steve Martin and of course, hi-jinks ensue. James Belushi even appears for a few minutes.
So the movie starts out in a plant shop. Rick Moranis plays Seymour, who is not only blessed with an awful name but a horrible recurring theme. Ellen Greene plays Audry, his love interest. I think she also played Audrey in a version on stage. The plant shop is about to go under, but Rick Moranis finds an “alien” plant which draws customers to the store. Eventually, Rick Moranis discovers that the plant needs human blood to survive and like any other person cuts his finger and squeezes blood into the plants mouth…DUH. As the plant gets bigger, it needs more blood. But it can also talk and, of course, break into song. It starts making Rick Moranis kill people to keep its hope of world conquest alive. Oh I almost forgot…this plant also makes Rick Moranis chop people up with a hatchet. Sorry that was kind of important.
So yeah, that’s basically Little Shop of Horrors in a nutshell. Apparently the plant is like symbol of evil in the world and how it can spread. I, personally, just saw a blood-sucking, man-eating, rabid plant. I guess you should just watch it and decide for yourself…Just be prepared. I was not.
Hmmmm. It’s a really good thing we didn’t watch RHPS, because the metaphor is harder to spot, and it’s full of homoeroticism to distract you. Little Shop of Horrors is tamer, sadly though, the music is worse. Oh well!
